An experiential learning opportunity for all students at Pathways High is our weekly entrepreneurship session and partnership with the UW-Milwaukee Lubar Entrepreneurship Center.
Professors from the Lubar Entrepreneurship Center come to Pathways High each week to teach our students the steps for developing their own businesses, including the creation of a value proposition and identification of customers and end users which are not always the same people. All students are working in small groups and to date each group has established an idea for a new business, identified customer segments, created value propositions for each customer segment and developed a 30-second “commercial” or elevator pitch for their business. The next steps are developing prototypes and websites, understanding the costs and revenues of the business and perfecting their pitches. All students will be presenting their startup businesses to the wider community during Wisconsin Startup Week on Wednesday, November 8 from 10:00 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. at Pathways High. All family members are invited and community members can call in to attend as well.
